Master Planned Community in Manvel Pomona by Hillwood Opens "The Dock" Kayak and Boat Launch

Posted on 11/16/2021 by

Doing your research into the best master-planned communities in Houston? Then you already know that amenities are one of the biggest differentiators when choosing where to live. Most master-planned community amenities include a swimming pool, clubhouse, playgrounds, and even a gym. But some communities put their own special touch on amenities, and others go beyond with some of the coolest community amenities in Houston.

The master-planned community of Pomona in Manvel, TX is just such a community.

All About Connections

Pomona was designed to allow residents to easily connect to each other and to nature. The land where Pomona is located plays a central role in this. Wide greenbelts, rolling hills, and century-old oak trees create the ideal natural setting for community members to come together to relax, play, and get to know each other.

Discover The Dock, with a Kayak and Boat Launch

Pomona has gone the extra mile to make the most of the community’s beautiful 18- acre lake. Our newest amenity is The Dock, located on the lake and featuring a dock area, boat ramp for electric boats, kayak launch, boardwalk and boat ties.

And if you’ve always dreamed of living near the water, we have good news! We’ve just started sales of over 250 homesites either on or near the water in Pomona. Many of these homesites offer lake views, and all of them are within walking distance of Camp Pomona, the heart of the community. If you love water sports and water fun, Pomona is one of few communities with a kayak launch in the Houston area.

Amenities and Activities to make Everyday Special

Before we cover amenities at Pomona, we want to acknowledge how our award-winning lifestyle director, Lori, helps to make our community one of the best master-planned communities near Houston. Lori takes the time to get to know each and every one of our homeowners and works to plan activities that will appeal to everyone. There are more than 300 activities on our calendar – that means we have something planned for almost every day of the year!

We’re not the only ones who have noticed Lori’s efforts. The Greater Houston Builders Association recently named Lori Lifestyle Director of the Year. And the National Association of Homebuilders recently gave Pomona the honor of Lifestyle Program of the Year.

Camp Pomona sets the stage for the community’s unique amenities. It includes a state-of-the-art “Exploration Zone” playground, resort-style swimming pools with cabanas, a catering kitchen, outdoor living and fireplace, event lawn, and fitness center. The boutique-style gym includes Peloton bikes & treads, a Smith machine, a half rack, TRX bands, free weights, stair climbers, a rowing machine, and more.

Whether your goal is to swim laps or just relax, Pomona has 2 resort-style swimming pools for residents to enjoy. The poolside cabanas are the ideal location from which to watch your children as they play and splash in the water.

Families with children will love living at Pomona, with a variety of playgrounds and experiences to engage young minds and imaginations. For example, The Hive is a park designed for kiddos ages 1-7. It features a honeycomb play structure with slides, swings, climbing elements, and more.

The Exploration Zone is full of places to have new adventures. Test your skills on our unique climbing structures. Slide down an imaginary mountain. Dig for imaginary treasure and swing for the stars!

Do you remember asking your parents to build cool stuff in your backyard, only to be met with a “no”? Well, the Backyard is your chance to have all the things and experiences you dreamed of! Escape to a wonderland of trees that are perfect for climbing. Hide from imaginary enemies in the treehouse. Jump on the zip line and fly across a pond. You’re only limited by your imagination! There’s also The Mantel, a perfect setting for enjoying beautiful fall temperatures as the sun goes down.

Another amenity you won’t find just anywhere is the Fish Camp. The catch of the day is waiting – just bring your fishing poles and prepare to enjoy the beautiful lake views.

Explore Pomona’s miles of hike and bike trails with friends or family or take the opportunity to enjoy some solitude.

The Grove is still to come at Pomona. It will feature a large open-air pavilion, dog parks, and more! It will also have a tree farm with a variety of fruit trees that connect Pomona back to its namesake.
